NRAS Healthcare Champions 2016

by Garreth

On 2nd November, NRAS held its 5th Healthcare Champions awards ceremony in Portcullis House, Westminster, with the kind permission of the Prime Minister and NRAS Founding Patron, the Rt. Hon Theresa May MP.

The event was a resounding success with over 80 NRAS Members, healthcare professionals, MPs and special guests attending.

The awards provide the opportunity to celebrate the dedication, professionalism and excellent care given by those healthcare professionals that go ‘the extra mile’ to provide the best possible outcomes for the many people living with RA and JIA, whilst also working in a challenging environment of NHS reforms and financial cuts. 

A full list of all the winners can be found on the NRAS website:
